Memorial Day Weekend Sale!

To celebrate the long weekend here in the US, my store at Brownie Scraps (along with some some of the other designers) is 35% off through Monday!

Hop on over so you don’t miss out on the sale!


Template Spotlight

Hi Everyone, Crystal here, and I'm Wendy's newest LadyBird. I always have fun working with Wendy's templates. I went looking through the store and found Boxed In Vol. 1: Squared Up and realized that I had never worked with it before.

It's the perfect little gift box for any small gift or treat. You know, I used to always go to the store is search for the perfect boxes or gift bags for my gifts, and they were never exactly what I was looking for. What's great about using templates by WendyBird Designs is that you can customize them in any way you want for whatever occasion you need it for.

Take a look at what I did with the template:

and here is one that I found in the gallery by Terra.

Go take a look at Wendy's store, I'm sure you'll find a template (or two) that you'd love to try. Never tried hybrid before? Why not start with this one, it's one of the easiest ones. All of the templates come with great instructions and they are easy to understand.

New! Rounded Basket (and coupons!)

I have a new template at Brownie Scraps today – the Rounded Basket
I first made this template for the Juicy kit – the iNSD free with purchase collab.  It included this printable basket -

I love the slight curve in the handle, it gives it a distinct shape and of course the bottom is just flat enough that your basket won’t roll away ;)
For this basket I used a new release from Scraps by Mara – All My Heart

My newest LadyBird, Crystal made this adorable basket – I love the big wrapped bow!

And Sandy made this beauty!

The Rounded Basket and other Fresh Baked Brownies are 25% off today!  To thank you for reading my blog, use coupon RoundBlog20 to get an additional 20% off before 5/31/11!
I forgot to blog about it so you might have missed my release last week at 9th&Bloom – the Tall Bag
This handled bag is pretty roomy – 3.25” wide x 1.5” deep x 5.75” tall – and it still prints on one sheet!

France won a RAK I held and here’s what she did with it – love the banners!

Did you miss the new release sale on the Tall Bag?  Use coupon TallBagBlog25 to get 25% off before 5/31/11
I only have a week left at 9th&Bloom – the month has gone so fast!  Keep an eye out for one last release from me there on Friday!

New Top Folds Cards

I hope that you had a great iNSD weekend and a great Mother’s Day!  I did some shopping and now I just have to find time to scrap with the goodies I bought! :)  Mother’s Day was relaxing for me and my boyfriend took me, his mom and my son out for a yummy sushi lunch!  The weather was gorgeous here in Phoenix so we ate out on the patio – so nice!  I was very happy to have my son home this weekend too, even if I did have to take him back to his dad’s on Sunday.

On to the hybrid goodies!  For Fresh Baked Brownies today, I have a set of card templates!

Sized at 4”x5.5”, they fit perfectly in standard greeting card envelopes.  As always, my templates are CU ok and come in PSD, TIFF and PNG layers!

Ready for some inspiration?


Gorgeousness right?!?

Find the Top Folds Cards HERE at Brownie Scraps, 25% off today!

Make sure you hop on over to the May Challenge Forum too, the Hybrid Challenge is posted and that means a FREE template for you!

This was created by sparagus, and is jsut such a beautiful invitation! So cute and adorable!!
This was created by KrystalBear. So pretty and I love the crayon instead of a pen!!
Created by Tanyia. She totally stole my idea of using a stuffed animal for posing but who can resist a cute penguin?
Created by SandyPieCreations. I love the bright colors, and the super sweet messages!!
An egg shaped basket by tiffanydimples. I am so craving a chocolate bunny now!!
